Oh my. Something else is at play here. Manually extracted tarball
contains wrong permissions, .MTREE file reports correct permissions.

pkg/ directory is sadly only owned by the build user. I suppose
something between package() and the tarball creation (or just
the tarball creation) screws things up. Any ideas what it might be?

libarchive version is 3.3.0.
fakeroot is 1.20.1.
